TROUSER PRESS REVIEW

ZOUNDS
The Curse of Zounds (UK Rough Trade) 1982

Someone must have slipped one of those post-anarcho-syndicalist pamphlets in with these guys’ Beano comics! This is sturdy, above-average English pop-punk with some surprisingly infectious hooks. But the foursome ain’t just disaffected youngsters lookin’ for a kiss (or any ol’ white riot) – they’re searching out the meaning of life in the post-industrial capitalist system. As long as you’ve got the tunes, fellas – go for it!

Zounds later issued a singles compilation on an Italian label.[Jim Green]
